There is no Zilker parking fee Oct through Feb. We'll meet in the grass by the two stone pillars on either side of the driveway into Barton Springs, then investigate three areas in the immediate vicinity that show us Texas geology! If you want to extend your visit to Zilker before or after our trip, the Austin Nature and Science Center is a great, free indoor/outdoor exhibit area to visit. Or a February family swim in Barton Springs! - the pool reopens for swimming this Friday Feb 3rd, after the recent rainstorm recharge. This Saturday Feb 4th 10-11am in Mueller Southwest Greenway Park, Jen Bristol, Camp Fire USA's Program Director, will be leading Leave No Trace family activities.

If you're interested in learning the best ways to use and preserve Texas natural places, or if you're involved in Scouting or other outdoor recreational organizations, this will be helpful training. We'll be in the Spore Ball area.

Free Monthly Outings with Camp Fire Kids Unplugged
posted by Jim Schwobel on October 21st, 2011 12:06 PM
Hello Ms. Kure, I live near Mueller and often enjoy the park facilities there (that’s why I subscribe to the citeCite Daily Digest). I am a member of a band named “Austin Polka Band” and we play Polka music (of course). Our band would like to offer our services for one of your Camp Fire Kids Unplugged events at Mueller. We would be glad to give the kids an educational opportunity to not only hear some live music but also discuss with them the different instruments, let them handle the instruments and actually “play” those instruments – sort of like a “musical petting zoo”. We are a professional ensemble but would offer this experience for free. If you are interested, please call me to discuss details. Regards, Jim Schwobel 478-0557 http://www.austinpolka.com
